HELLO! I am alive (barely. I mean the votes are being counted as we speak and I’m a nervous wreck). BUT. The website has had quite a big facelift!
Hello beautiful blog readers! I’m sorry for the delay on this weeks blog post. I want to write to you as much as possible because I enjoy telling you about my life so much. School started last week, and rolling into week two (literally, I’m tired already and feel like being rolled around) has been a jungle of madness already.
I cannot believe I start my last year of college on Tuesday, September 6. Five years (yes, five, I’ll get into that) has gone by in a snap, and I’m sitting here feeling ambivalent, excited, scared, and optimistic. This last, sixth, year of school will be the most important, pivotal, and encouraging year of my life. I’m ready to get started.
This week I wanted to FINALLY do something more design based on my blog. It’s been a great summer, but I kind of have neglected my Adobe skills and I really don’t want to suffer when September quickly comes around. When I was thinking of something to do for this week, I came up with the Quick Typography & Music Challenge. I set up some simple rules for myself:
Blogging was an activity that always seemed too unreachable for me to actually accomplish. I always felt like no one would be interested in what I had to say, I would constantly be out of ideas, and I never felt confident enough with my writing. But I’m here, I’m writing, and I couldn’t be happier.
It’s been just about one year since I moved into my own efficiency (smaller than a studio, no separation of space, about 200 square ft.) apartment. After living with roommates for two years and turning 22, I figured it was about time. I found a cozy, filled with charm, older building that’s just outside of downtown and close to where I go to school. It’s perfect in almost every way.
